Stopped by here on my into town based on the review here. City Beverage certainly did not let down, based on the reviews. The selection was outstanding, I was thoroughly impressed by the vast bomber selection and vintage availability. A nice enough staff there, if a bit preoccupied, but helpful in the end. Wish they would store the beers away from the windows, or pull down the blinds, there were some vintages in direct sun for at least part of the day. That would be my only concern here, but definitely highly recommend this to stock up on a vast number of excellent beers.

City Beverage is my kind of store. Walking in, directly to your right is the counter. The interior is sort of broken into two sections. The first, where the entrance is located houses wine, homebrew supplies, and a bank of cooler doors loaded with beer. A random cooler with some Oakham bottles, that I've never seen in bottles before, sat between the two sections.

The second section, that I will call the beer section, is stacked. It has a very home office/library feel. Dark wood shelving make up narrow aisles and each shelf is stacked full and high with quality beer. The locals and regionals are very well represented but so is everything else from around the country and world. After slowly working your way through the beer section you can go take a seat in some comfy seating across from the dark, short bar used for both a quick drink and growler fills. The employee that day was very well versed in beer and kept the store in tip-top shape. Prices were reasonable. This place is too easy to leave with too much beer. Be careful. Shop at your own risk,

We stopped into this joint while traveling to the Sexual Chocolate release. Great bottle selection, well organized, great taps, awesome employees, and reasonable prices. We chatted with the guy behind the desk and ended up giving him some KY locals we had left over from the bottle share at Foothills earlier that morning and he hooked us up with a 2011 Event Horizon. Awesome gesture! If you are in town make sure you stop in.
